Journal ZonkerWilliam's Journal: To many experts, not enough knowledge!

It's amazing how many people who I run into who continuously act like they know better. I'm 42 year old professional, I have degree's in Electrical Engineering and Physics, yet I encounter young twenty somethings who just think they know beter. It's almost hilarious when I encounter a young fellow and challenge him when he tells me whats best. All I have to say is "why?" or "how?" and he hesitates and give's me a blank stare. Can't blame them, society is full of want-to-be experts and if they hear something or read something on the Internet, they think they know everything. Almost as if most of the young today have frail ego's. All anyone has to do is challenge what they believe and they crumple. Sad really. I mean, instead of really learning something, they try to pose as if they do.
